Preparing for Halloween

We don't celebrate Halloween here, in Hungary. 1st November is the Day of the Deads, when we commemorate our gone relatives and friends. After sundown we go to the cemetery and place candles onto the graves. It's a beautiful and touching scene with the thousands of candles giving the only light in the dark.
So, no Halloween... But I couldn't miss an opportunity to make funny miniatures in this theme. Here are my latest works with pumpkins and bones and mummies.

When I bake twice

There are some minis I can't make with only one baking. The meats with bones definitely fall into this category. The ribs are made on a wood rod, so they easily get the curved shape. The tiny chicken leg bones are built on a piece of wire, then afetr baking I put the "flesh" onto the bone. This way I don't have to worry about the bones to be pressed during the work.
